Apple announced today the release date of HomePod. HomePod orders will be sent on February, 9. Customers can order HomePods on the Apple website starting on January 26, this Friday. HomePod is only available in the US, UK, and Australia. Apple said that HomePod will arrive in France and Germany this spring.
HomePod was expected to have been launched in December 2017, but at that time, Apple “need a little more time before it’s ready for the customers.”
According to Apple, at just under 7 inches tall, HomePod delivers stunning audio quality. Using just the voice, it’s easy to use, and works together with an Apple Music subscription. Siri, now actively used on over half a billion devices, has developed a deep knowledge of music and understands preferences and tastes. And with Siri, HomePod can send a message, set a timer, play a podcast, check the news, sports, traffic and weather, and even control a wide range of HomeKit smart home accessories.
